Default Holy crap that's a lot of errors! (memtest related)

I finally got memtest to work and boy the results were ugly. After running it for 20 minutes, I got a total of 975 errors, yes 975. Now I dunno what the average amount of errors are for people who get errors on memtest, but surely it can't be this high. So now that I know my ram has this many errors, does this mean I gotta send em back to newegg for a new pair?

nope i highly doubt u have to send em back that just means take it easy on the overclocking or relax the timings or up the ram volts.

I haven't OC'ed anything though, I even ran cpu-z and my cpu's speed is normal as well as everything else. The latency for my ram is 2-2-2-8 BTW.

and you got that with a crucial stick?? how very strange? and no overclocking! how very strange also!

did you tell your vendor that? tell them! Ive had errors in my OCZ sticks, but never that many I think it was in the 500s range.

I had a gig of dual channel ones BTW.

to see how good your RAM is by "burning it in" and testing for errors, and such. I have a mini linux distro to burn in everything! its very neat! Ill show you the linux to DL it if you want.
